    I have been working at International Institute for Learning full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. My team collaborates really well. Each member works very hard and respects each others opinion. You are able to bring ideas to upper management and have those ideas listened to. Being that the company is small you have the ability to take on big projects that you may not have been able to take on at a bigger company. The company overall is pretty close knit.

    Cons

    With the pros of being close knit company there are also negatives to that effect. There are many people who have worked at the company for a long time and hold high positions from that longevity but are pretty much squatters that take advantage of their long relationship. Being a small company some projects that are detrimental in longterm take the backseat to day-to-day projects.

    Advice to Management

    As I previously mentioned in my pros, I have the ability to bring my ideas to upper management at anytime with advice that I have. So, they are aware of my suggestions and we are trying to work to get these necessary longterm projects taken care of.
